About

I’m an artist based on the West Coast of Scotland.

I work mostly in mixed media, aiming for the tipping point between drawing and painting, abstraction and realism. I often make figurative work, although this can get pushed quite far.

Recurring concerns include perception and phenomenology; the body; the sea; the self; womanhood; safety & mortality; memory; space, and creating space in the picture plane where dialogues between observation and imagination can happen.
